Forestry Commission Scotland, Central Scotland Woodfuel Forum, In association with Lothians & Fife Green Network Partnership Farm Woodland Management and Woodfuel Demonstration

27th May
Estate and farm woodland can provide multipurpose benefits, including a sustainable fuel supply, valuable timber products and environmental services. Managed well, such woodlands have the potential to increase business diversification opportunities and to contribute towards the environmental value of the business.

Producing woodfuel from your woodlands, amongst other timber products, for example, can potentially make overall woodland management more economically attractive and in generating renewable heat from woodfuel you can also benefit financially from the Renewable Heat Incentive.

With thanks to Hopetoun Estate and Smiths Gore, this FREE event will discuss how, by using the right expertise and equipment to plan, fell, extract and market their timber, woodland owners can manage their woodland to maximise its economic and environmental value and potentially create a new revenue stream for their business. Drawing on the specific experience gained by Hopetoun Estate, the event will highlight the practical steps taken in the production, supply and use of woodfuel and discuss the difference woodfuel has

made to overall woodland management on the Estate. The event will include a range of practical woodland management and woodfuel processing demonstrations and provide an opportunity to view the existing wood fuelled district heating system and woodfuel storage facilities at Hopetoun Estate.
